A 35 inch 21:9 aspect ratio curved gaming monitor with a curved radius of 2000R. Its equipped with 160Hz adaptive sync for better gaming experience and visuals. Looking at the I/O ports it has 2 HDMI 1.4 with MHL support, 2 Display Port 1.2, DVI-D Dual Link, D-sub, audio in and audio out. Also a Kensington lock. Looking at the bezel on the side is measuring at 2.8cm while the front top/side/bottom is measured at 1.9 cm. Bottom part, you’ll find the touch-sensitive buttons which has some delay upon touch them likely to mitigate accidental touch. For a person who runs 2 PC display output to 1 monitor having a dedicated button to switch the input is a plus point for me.
Overall is has a brush plastic finish at the base part and glossy finish around the screen and the back of the monitor. Ergonomic wise, it has 3 degrees front tilt and 15 degrees back tilt. There is no swivel or height adjustment and VESA mount support. There is a 9.3cm clearance between table top and screen. The monitor weighs 11.6kg. It includes two 5 watts speakers. The rated total power consumption is 60watts.
On to the screen, it support a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels which is a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor. 8-bit panel bit depth. For those who are part gamer part photographer or videographer the color gamut is 100% sRGB and 73% Adobe RGB. Tho the PPI is rather low for a 35 inch monitor at 79 PPI so images may look softer on this monitor. However, for video editing programs, bigger is better as we can view all our edit tab/control and a bigger video preview to edit at ease. It has a matte finish that help to reduce some glare from external light source to have distraction free gaming experience. 178 degrees viewing angle from all angle thanks to its AMVA panel. Viewing distance would be around 70-100cm. 21:9 aspect ratio is rather useful for open world games Witcher 3, Far Cry series and upcoming Nier Automata.
In game artifacts can be distracting for competitive gaming, you would want to eliminate that as much as possible. 160Hz support here is great but there is no significant improvement base by eye alone compared to 144Hz so you don’t need to worry. But, you will see a big jump if you’re coming from 60Hz monitor. But mainly I will use it as a productivity monitor since I can split the screen into 2 or 3 windows. For example opening word document and website together, for college and university assignment.
For the price I wished it has a USB port for data pass through or for charging the nearby device for convenience, other monitor competitors are going for 3440 x 1440 resolution but the the price would be hard to some, AOC maybe have have lower resolution of 2560 x 1080 but is much more affordable to the mass.
